Some restaurants have eagerly welcomed the BYOB concept, while others prefer to quietly discourage it. As a service and tourist-driven destination, BYOB isn't often discussed or championed in Las Vegas. And in fact, it's legally prohibited in the City of Las Vegas proper. (And you thought Sin City was a place where anything goes.) But the "city" of Las Vegas really only covers select areas of the valley, including Downtown, as well as parts of Summerlin and the northwest. What you have left over are areas -- including the Strip -- that are technically considered unincorporated Clark County, and not bound by City of Las Vegas jurisdiction. If this sounds confusing, you're not alone. That's why we've put together a guide to all the best restaurants where bringing a bottle isn't considered a sin. Just remember, BYOB policies and prices can change at any given time, so it's a good idea to call in advance and double check. Some restaurants (including Restaurant Guy Savoy at Caesars Palace, Estiatorio Milos at the Cosmopolitan, and LAVO at the Palazzo) don't allow any bottles of outside alcohol at all.

1. Bottiglia Cucina Enoteca 2300 Paseo Verde Pkwy, Henderson, NV 89052 (Off Strip)

Walking into this Green Valley Ranch spot is like walking into a rustic Italian garden party in which Martha Stewart and Marie Antoinette have equal decorating rights: all-white furnishings, pastel floral prints, contemporary chandeliers, and vibrant hanging lamps all dress up the interior. The whimsical aesthetic continues with the market-driven menu that features light pasta dishes and free-range meats, all of which are plated artfully with edible flowers and mico-greens. If the extensive wine list doesn’t entice you, the fruit-obsessed specialty cocktails, like blood orange mimosas, certainly will.

2. Hank's Fine Steaks 2300 Paseo Verde Pkwy, Henderson, NV 89052 (Off Strip)

Set inside of the Green Valley Ranch Hotel, Hank's Fine Steaks is just 10 minutes off the Strip and one of Vegas's best steakhouses. The award-winning restaurant has a classic steakhouse menu with a wide selection of wet- and dry-aged cuts ranging from the 8oz filet mignon to a 42oz T-Bone (for sharing, of course), but their signature dish is the decadent Chateuabriand steak with seasonal vegetables. The atmosphere inside is sleek and elegant, with soft lighting, modern booths, and a long bar. Hank's is also known for their martinis and their happy hours, which make them a real favorite of the locals.

3. Sonoma Cellar 1301 W Sunset Rd, Henderson, NV 89014 (Off Strip)

Tucked away in the Sunset Station Hotel & Casino, this steakhouse is committed to providing you with a top-notch wining and dining experience. So much so, all of their waitstaff are requited to take the Level 1 Sommelier Exam, meaning they'll definitely be able to call you out for ordering the second-cheapest bottle on the menu.

4. Standard & Pour 11261 S Eastern Ave, Henderson, NV 89052

It’s a good thing that Henderson’s Standard & Pour serves small plates because you’re going to have a tough time choosing from the trendy gastropub’s menu selections of new American veggies, fish, meat, and dessert. Start off with the whole smoked romanesco; despite its lumpy appearance, this mutant cauliflower-broccoli baby has a smooth flavor paired with capers, red onions, golden raisins, and fine herbs. Other favorites include the date and bleu cheese jam on bacon bread (basically an adult PB&J) and the crispy oysters with sriracha egg salad (#spicy). Indulge in the beverage program, which offers catchy drinks like the First Date or the Man Candy, both of which air on the sweet side. Don’t leave without checking out the balcony; not only does it have extra plush green velvet bench seating, but it also has a killer view of the Valley.

5. Todd's Unique Dining 4350 E Sunset Rd, Henderson, NV 89014

If a restaurant has to call itself unique, chances are it’s anything but. But that’s not the case with Todd’s Unique, a family-run seafood and steak restaurant that stands antithetical in atmosphere to the often impersonal hotel-backed restaurants of Strip lore. Chef Todd Clore, whose wife often serves at the joint, offers a constantly changing menu that revolves around staple dishes like the juicy grilled skirt steak “on fire,” boneless short rib, and goat cheese wontons with raspberry basil sauce. Todd’s technicolor patterned booths jog your memory back to the diner in your hometown; just one meal here is enough to make your trip to Sin City a little more memorable and a lot more wholesome.

6. Capo's Restaurant & Speakeasy 5675 W Sahara Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89146 (Off Strip)

This self proclaimed "mob restaurant" brings together Italian flavors and steakhouse dishes, each named for the mobster error (like the "Mafioso Caprese" or "Fredo's Wise Guy Alfredo"). They even claim to be using a sauce recipe from the family of Al Capone himself, plus there's live performances every night.

7. Double Helix 6599 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89119 (Strip)

This swanky bar right on the Strip features the holy trinity of fancy indulgences: wine, whiskey, and cigars. A menu of sharable plates, charcuterie, and cheese selections keeps the focus on the expensive drinks being poured behind the bar. With over 100 different whiskeys, ryes, and bourbons, not to mention the exhaustive wine list, you could stay here trying different drinks for days. The staff have created many a themed flight of whiskey or wine in case that's what you want to do, including the Rye Not? flight of ryes and the ABC (Anything But Chardonnay) flight of white wines. A lengthy happy hour makes this rather upscale place more affordable, so you can end your meal with one of their 14 varieties of cigar.

8. Ferraro's Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar 4480 Paradise Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89169

Opened in 1958, GS's served some greats -- like Nat "King" Cole, Joe DiMaggio & Elvis Presley -- over the years, and's home to "The Best Steaks on Earth". ON EARTH!! So, twist your arm, guess you'll just have to go and see if that trademark's really true.

10. Herbs & Rye 3713 W Sahara Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89102 (Off Strip)

This steak-and-cocktails focused restaurant is a sophisticated and romantic spot that attracts both liquor nerds and happy hour hounds. Cocktail lovers gravitate towards the lengthy drinks menu, which reads like a timeline of mixology's greatest hits, from the "Original Collins" of the Gothic Age (1776-1865) through the "Harvey Wallbanger" of the Rat Pack Era (1950-1968) and the bartender's choice of the modern revival (1995-present). Others love this place for their half-off steaks promotion during happy hour, which runs both in the afternoon and late night. The dark, leather-covered furniture and vintage wooden furnishings make this place an inviting throwback to the alluring atmosphere of old Vegas, so it's popularity is unsurprising—make reservations.

Chef Francesco DeFuria has created dishes with quality French and Italian flavors and generous portions, so come hungry, but not so-hungry-I’m-about-to-faint hungry, because big crowds at Bistro 57 can sometimes mean long waits. While you wait, ogle at the high ceilings and rich chocolate brown wood paneling warmed up with live music on weekends. Food standouts include the escargot with bacon and shitake mushrooms and the eggplant parmesan. As for drinks, with 57 wines on the beverage program, you’ll be able to play sommelier and select just the right one for your crew,

If you’ve survived your bro’s Vegas Dad-chelor weekend (yes, those are a thing), you deserve some serious treats from Bite Breakfast & Brunch, the casual Spring Valley joint that hits you over the head with a whopping twenty pancake varieties across the sweet-savory spectrum. Those of you into that hair of the dog stuff: get your fill with the Guinness-battered beer pancakes topped with smoked applewood bacon. The real winner is the hazelnut pancake plate, topped with bananas, walnuts, and nutella. If you have uber savory feels, there’s an entire BYO (build your own) omelet or skillet menu section made just for you.

This stylish pizzeria specializes in two distinctly different kinds of pizza, Neapolitan and Roman, that are baked in custom-made brick ovens.

Either one goes great with any of the nine different wine flights on the menu, or one of three choices of Campania buffalo mozzarella as an appetizer.

Other Mama should be all the reason you need to head to Spring Valley, where this homey spot is serving an Asian-inspired menu of seafood specialties like sushi, ceviche, and oysters, plus inventive libations with house-infused spirits. Cool and casual without the frenzy of Downtown, it offers creations like a sashimi salad with thyme and honey, and a scallop carpaccio with blood orange and fennel. While the dishes are fresh and edgy, the cocktails are named after what could be your grandmother's closest group of friends, such as Shelby (bourbon, lemon, maple gastrique, mint), Ingrid (vodka, triple sec, strawberry balsamic shrub, cava), and Bea (cachaca, Drambuie, grapefruit, Aleppo-honey syrup, grapefruit bitters).

One of only two restaurants in the Americas from acclaimed French chef Joël Robuchon (the other, L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon, is on the same floor of MGM Grand), this restaurant has a formal dress code and dishes that cater to a sophisticated palette. Carefully crafted seasonal menus pair well with free-flowing Champagne, but be sure to pay attention to the wine list. There are more than 1,700 bottles featured, with some impressive choices for Burgundy and Bordeaux. But you can also keep things simple with a California cabernet to wash down all the foie gras on your plate.

39. L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon 3799 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109 (Strip)

Joel Robuchon's flagship restaurant is a deliberate retreat from all things neon and flashy (read: Vegas). Inside this elegant, Art Deco style townhouse, the three-Michelin starred chef serves four course meals comprised of truffles, caviar, and other fixtures of French haute cuisine. It's certainly extravagant, without a doubt, but it feels like you're walking into the dining room of someone's private mansion rather than a typical restaurant.

41. Le Cirque 3600 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109 (Strip)

The Vegas spin-off of the famous Manhattan restaurant by the same name, Le Cirque offers an authentic taste of France right on the Strip. Helmed by wunderkind Chef Wilfried Bergerhausen, the Michelin-star kitchen serves two different tasting menus -- the five-course dégustation and ten-course prestige, respectively -- that feature artfully plated, modern renditions of classic dishes like sautéed foie gras in a calvados-cider sauce and Japanese Wagyu beef striploin with braised oxtail and bordellaise sauce. The wine list boasts over 900 selections and emphasizes French varietals, which the on-site sommelier will be happy to discuss with you if you'd like a suggestion for pairings. Reservations are highly sought at this vibrant satin-laden spot, so be sure to call ahead and don't forget your classy attire -- the flavors here are boundless, but the dress code is strict.

42. Lupo by Wolfgang Puck 3950 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89119 (Strip)

Lupo at the Mandalay Bay is Wolfgang Puck’s premier Italian restaurant, so leave any reservations you might have at the door (except the one you made). The dining room is akin to an old-fashioned Italian trattoria that had a facelift to match its owner’s; while there are antique furnishings and an exposed-beam ceiling, the spacious bar has geometric lines that mirror the modern white chandeliers that hang above. But there is nothing inauthentic about Lupo; the Roman-inspired pizzas, pastas, and meats marry traditional recipes with innovative ingredients, like lasagna “Della Nonna” made with spinach pasta or the ravioli made with burrata. With pasta made fresh daily in a glass-enclosed area in the dining area, Lupo involves its patrons in the culinary process from prep to plate.

43. Martorano's 3655 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109 (Strip)

Philly native Steve Martorano brings some much-needed East Coast to Vegas’s wild west with Martorano’s at the Paris Las Vegas. With neon lights and disco balls, the Italian restaurant is every bit as flashy as you’d expect from Martorano, who’s known for his in-your-face attitude. His iteration of Italian dishes embraces the Italian-American culture of his upbringing, so expect classics in generous portions, like the South Philly Cheesesteak and Rigatoni Sunday Pork Gravy, and surprises like the eggplant stack and cocktails topped with a scoop of water ice (a Philly staple). The main dining room overlooks an open kitchen where diners can watch as Martorano whips up his delicacies.

44. Mastro's Ocean Club 3720 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89158 (Strip)

Located in the Shops at Crystal, Mastro's Ocean Club is just as elegant and high-end as the stores that surround it, serving only the finest cuts of steak and fresh seafood. White tablecloths and walls of white banquettes elevate the modern decor, and will distract you from the fact that, technically, you're eating mall food. All your standard cuts -- from New York Strip to filet mignon -- are on the menu, as are seafood staples like king crab legs and sautéed scallops. A bonus? There's a small selection of sushi in the lineup, too, such as the Ahi Tuna Tostada with big eye tuna, fresh avocado, spicy onion salsa, and ponzu chili sauce.

45. Mr Chow 3570 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109 (Strip)

Take the set of private elevators located on the casino level of Caesars Palace to the second floor, and you'll find yourself at Mr Chow, a chic restaurant serving family-style Chinese dishes. Overlooking the Garden of the Gods pool, this bright-white space is far from gaudy despite its location in the Palace, but still has touches of glitz in decor like a metallic champagne cart. When it's wheeled around, be sure to request a glass of bubbly, and pair it with signature dishes including chicken satay, green prawns, and hand-pulled noodles.

The menu sticks to staples, such as onion soup au gratin with bubbling baked gruyere, a frisée & bacon salad with a soft-poached egg, and roast chicken & frites grand-mère style with mushrooms, bacon, and pearl onions. For the full Parisian effect, make sure you request a table on the outdoor patio.

47. Nobu Restaurant Caesars Palace 3570 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109

Nobu is more than just a restaurant. It’s also a hotel-within-a-hotel at Caesars Palace. But the buzz begins with the sushi and the snapper with dry miso. It’s the biggest Nobu restaurant in the world and the only one in the US to come with teppan tables for that Japanese steakhouse experience.

48. The Old Homestead Steakhouse 3570 Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109 (Strip)

Located within the cavernous walls of Caesar’s Palace, Old Homestead is the Vegas reincarnation of the famed Manhattan restaurant by the same name. The menu here is just as timeless: expect robust, juicy filet mignons accompanied by creamy bordelaise sauce and lighter classics like oysters Rockefeller Royale with Pernod crème. With a California-heavy wine list and interior that speaks to the heyday of mid-century Sin City grandeur (think crisp white table linens, plush red leather booths, sultry dim lighting), it’s a great spot for special evenings with your significant carnivore -- providing, of course, that both of you came equipped with fancy eveningwear and a reservation made long in advance.

Located at the Forum Shops in Caesars Palace, The Palm has a been a staple in the Strip's dining scene since it opened in the early '90s, cooking up a menu of classic dishes that reflect the team's Italian-American background -- from prime aged steaks and jumbo Nova Scotia lobsters to chicken parm and veal martini. The wood-laden space with white-clothed tables and cartoon sketches all over the walls is always bustling with parties celebrating birthdays, stopping in after catching a show, or grabbing lunch during a work convention.

51. Portofino 3400 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109 (Strip)

An alum of other Strip spots like Bouchon and Alex, Chef Michael LaPlaca brings his coastal Italian cuisine to the Mirage Resort & Casino with romantic Portofino, where he uses ingredients imported from Italy to create modern takes on traditional dishes, such as crab cake arancini and meatballs topped with cheese-stuffed squash blossoms. The Tuscan-influenced restaurant hand-crafts its pasta, too, which you can try in plates like pork-cheek ravioli and ripatelli with wild-boar bolognese. LaPlaca even keeps his gluten-free customers in mind with a separate menu of pasta made from arborio rice flour.

This Vegas branch of the famously difficult-to-get-into NYC-based Italian restaurant is serving the same family recipes in a much larger space that features a replica of the 12-table original in Harlem. The classic dishes are all throwbacks to the family's Southern Italian roots, featuring pastas, risottos, and steak bistecca with desserts like classic tiramisu and cheesecake to finish.

53. Rivea Las Vegas 3950 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109 (Strip)

Alain Ducasse's super swanky spot in the Delano Hotel is a mash-up of old world expertise and new world flavors-- think perfectly cooked roast duck breast, but with tart orange sauce; a grilled octopus salad and confit bell peppers. Expect a hefty price tag, but a dining experience as impressive as this is truly priceless, yes?

54. Sage 3730 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89158 (Strip)

Sage offers one of the most memorable fine dining experiences on the Strip thanks to its sexy lounge decor and a fresh, ever-changing menu from James Beard Award-winning Chef Shawn McClain. Purple and yellow tones fill the space -- from the ribbon-patterned carpet to the warm mood lighting cast by tasteful chandeliers -- and match the equally vibrant menu, which has featured items including grilled Spanish octopus, black bass, and Wagyu filet. Sage is a favorite in the area for its inventive cocktails, too, including one mixed with cotton candy.

This steakhouse inside Planet Hollywood serves up all your traditional cuts of meat (22oz ribeye, filet mignon, etc) plus departures from the expected like jumbo shrimp and rack of lamb. Their dock-to-dish seafood program serves up line-caught fish so fresh it may have been swimming in the waters of Hawaii the day before. On any given day you can get some smoked crudo, pan roasted ono, or blackened white walu. Be sure to leave room for dessert, because their famous 24-layer chocolate cake has earned rave reviews from Food & Wine and more.

57. Sushi Roku 3500 S Las Vegas Blvd., Las Vegas, NV 89109 (Strip)

The Vegas outpost of a buzzy, California-based mini-chain, Sushi Roku is crafting the best sushi on the Strip out of its dimly lit, Zen-style space inside the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace. What sets this spot apart is the diversity it infuses into its non-traditional rolls, using ingredients from across the globe, including Latin America (jalapeños) and Europe (olive oil). Those two elements are found in the tuna jalapeño roll: spicy tuna topped with tuna sashimi and yuzu olive oil. Your bill will rack up pretty quickly with Roku's expertly crafted rolls (not to mention entrees like filet mignon with ginger teriyaki sauce), but you're not just paying for the food here -- you're coughing it up for the stunning Strip views, too.
